Rally by the river

Last weekend, we attended a FMCA BATS chapter rally in Vidalia, LA.  The rally was held at the River View RV Park along the Mississippi River.  We always enjoy these fun rallies. Being camped alongside the Mississippi River is always a special treat. 

The campground has a section used largely by rallies and other groups with available recreation hall. It has full hookups, WIFI, and a pool.




Walking the campground, we came across one very old trailer that looked just the like the one in the Lucille Ball movie, the Long Long trailer.  If you have not seen this very funny movie about first time RV travel released in 1954, I would recommend it.


We spent most of our spare time walking the river paved path, enjoying the river traffic.  This an historically significant area of the river, with Natchez directly across the river in MS.  Natchez was an early important port for goods from the north  and local goods going to the sea port of New Orleans.  This area fell on hard times during the Civil War and never regained  its former status.















Even Jim Bowie was here and is remembered for a less than flattering event.


We had quite some rain and moist air during our stay and this made for some low fog rolling along the river and drifting over the banks.





We did manage to get in some sightseeing and these outing will be covered in the next post or two.

I really like the pictures of the river. I've never been that far south, but maybe someday I will.

Nice that the park gas a separate section for rallies. Really enjoyed you oictures of the muddy Mississippi. Neat foggy ones.

It looks like it's been rather cold in Vidalia. I would have expected some beautiful blue skies. Perhaps, we left those in Arizona.

The bridges look interesting. Without green grass and leaf'd trees it looks much like it will look here in a few weeks when/if the snow all melts.
